Subject: the war in burma and china anchored by the road
narrated by ronald reagan i believe, going from the sound of the voice only mind you, this is a sure fire documentary.
sure fire, but in fact one will only get out of this hour or so what one puts in to it. it is not an easy story to tell, and you have to be patient and understanding of the situation that is being faced both in historical and social contexts.
one thing is certain though. if you can watch this film and come away wanting to fight in an army or fly operations in an air force, you will find a fight somewhere.
